A new season of wallet-taunting, evil accessories from the architects of my financial downfall:
A military bages scarf, in case the t-shirt was too small for you. Thanks, BT, that’s not helpful.
Being Satan’s own minions, I have no doubt that when I stop needing warm, blanket-like things which are soft and comfortable and lovely colours, this demonic fashion house will find spring dresses to upset me with instead. I will keep you all posted.
Merry Christmas, Saturnalia, Winterval, Rebirth of the sun, Yule, and every other vaguely midwinter celebration’s good tidings, from the team here at Faschionism! See you in the new year!
Everyone with £175 to spare on one, of course!
She Vamps, a London-based Etsy seller, has a serious collection of these beautiful, classic Art Noveau kimonos and a selection of other high-end accessories guaranteed to appeal to the decadent and comfortably-off.
The middle of the darkest patch of the Northern Hemisphere year is obviously the correct time to think about spring wardrobes and to purchase thin cotton dresses, and why not start where I did, with this lovely wrap dress from Look for the Stars, via Amazon:
Sizes go from a UK8 to a UK22, and the site advises that you buy larger than your size: however, I am on the borders of a UK24, and the size UK22 I bought fits snugly but well (and does terrifying and wonderful things to my cleavage). It is 100% cotton, thin, and rather more vibrant than it appears in the publicity images: comes in other colours if for some mad reason you don’t like leaf green, and Look for the Stars is, according to their publicity material, a small family-owned business trading out of Yorkshire. I’m a big fan of supporting small businesses, and at £33.99 this is a pretty good deal.
So it all started with:
Then someone pointed out this t-shirt, which I was naturally charmed by:
$15 from topatoco.com, who have many other cute t-shirts, all of which will be mine.
Then when I was looking for winter socks, I found:
Octopus socks, $12 from Sourpuss.
Suddenly it’s looking all too easy to become a walking aquarium!
Once again Bolongaro Trevor provide longing for the impoverished and slightly-too-rotund, but if you’re richer than me and have a chest measurement under 46″ you may like to wear this on my behalf:
On closer inspection I can’t say I’m personally thrilled by the buttons, being a great lover of shiny brass military ones, but I have to say that these demure and understated black two-hole ones have their place.
Familiarity with the standard of BT’s other creations suggests that this will be comfortable and wear well, and for the listed price of £295 it bloody well ought to. Maybe wait for the January sales!
